Dashen Emmanuel :: 6 months

This sweet, sweet little boy…with his little love for blankies, foxes and all things bright. Those eyes and that smile and that doting big brother…sigh.

Allie Margaret :: 10 days

The past week has been all about babies over here! In the last few days I photographed a beautiful momma and her pregnant belly soon followed by a sweet session featuring newborn twins {little peanuts!!!} and I was able to witness the beauty and pain of childbirth {my eighth birth!!} and have a newborn session this afternoon…wow, what a roller coaster of emotions. All happy, I assure you, but the tenderness and raw sentiment of a growing family is one that I always cherish and look forward to being lucky enough to witness.

Like Miss Allie Margaret here. I was roommates with her momma in college, photographed her wedding to an awesome guy, was fortunate to be asked to capture their first daughters’ first year of life and then got to meet adorable <alert!> Allie M. Too quickly it will be time for cake smashes and happy birthdays, but for now I invite you to meet little Allie as a fresh 10-day-old newborn.

{And, seriously, that last image just cracks me up!!}

Christina & Jason :: Married

The warmth and sunshine from the previous days had faded and left a whirling crisp fall breeze and clouds in its place. In a room off of the church annex she gazed at her reflection in the mirror, touching up her lipstick, smiling to a bridesmaid. The lack of sunshine outside did nothing to dwindle any spirits as this was a day she had long awaited. Slowly, but ever so steady, she glided down the hallway and out the door to meet her groom for the first time. Her feet seemed to barely touch the ground and the smile could not be taken from her lips. The breeze danced with her veil while she made her way to him and as he turned to see her, the first time as his wife in her wedding gown, he gasped and reached out to hold her.

Two became one; it was finally time.

Louie Michael :: 6 months

Who doesn’t love a little baby skin, sweet smelling of lotion and love?

Oh, Mr. Louie…

Silas Alvin :: 1 year!

This little man is going to be a big brother any day now {so, so excited–come on baby #3!!!} so why not share his awesome 1-year session!?

I was in the delivery room when Silas was born, cuddled him during our newborn session and laughed with him and his silly faces when he was about 6 months old. I mean, look at that little mohawk!? That smile!? Those huge eyes! Plus that cake smash at the end…?!

Love. It. Love. Him.
